    What I think, is if they have to ask for your trust, why should you? If they haven't already earned your trust, what they are really asking for is for you to make yourself available as a mark.

    In any event, if anyone ask for trust, I see a red flag. Do you think I'm right or wrong in that assessment?

    No we don't, God doesn't exist, so trusting in God is foolish. Then what does that make our money? Phoney as can be. As long as I can spend it I don't care.

    To be too stingey in giving trust is bad. To give trust too easily is worse.

    People have to earn my trust. Even then, I am cautious. I trust very few people totally. But there are a few!

    Of those few would you trust your life to any? And if so why?

    I have already trusted my life to other people, when assistance is required in hazardous sports.

    I trust people as little as I absolutely have to.
    I don't think I've had anybody flat-out ask me for my trust, although a lot of panhandlers use the line "I wouldn't lie to you."
    Which if they didn't make me very nervous-wondering if they're going to mug me-I'd probably laugh at that.

    No, unless I already did.

    I trust no one fully, but there is such a thing as 'practical trust' I guess.

    However, you can trust me fully. I'm a 100% trustworthy. Belief me. Please...?
    :cool:

    Ever hear of the word reassurance?

    Ever been to a doctor, dentist or even attorney? Those are just a few of the people you will have to trust one day or another with your life or your well being. If you don't trust then you won't be using any of those people ever. I don't know anyone that doesn't trust those kinds of people as well as many others. We take a very high risk when we trust others but can only hope they will not harm us but actually do some good for us as we would do to them.

    That sounds like desperation begging of a horny dude. No thank you.

    From who? Another family member, just a friend, a wanna be girl/boy friend or a stranger?

    Yes, but do you consider all doctors to be equally trustworthy? If you find yourself in a position where you have to trust a doctor, because not trusting a doctor is a worse choice. How do you minimize the risk or do you?

    Sometimes you may have the time to evaluate many doctors to help you out if you are experiencing a medical problem that isn't an immediate threat to your life. Then you should take the time and investigate the choices that you can choose from. That said there will be times where time is of the essence and when you are involved in an automobile accident as an example you can't take the time to examine who you will be trusting with saving your life.

    Sounds like you've been burned a few times to many.

    :D Red Flag waving vigorously.

    Yeah! Don't think I ever met a panhandler that wasn't looking for drug money. Probably a good idea to put some distance between them and you.

    A little.

    It depends who says it. If a relative is about to fix my car and I'm unsure about it, he can remind me that he does know and that he's not some next man.

    If a mechanic has to say trust me though, that might ring some alarm bells though. :D
